Aircell has completed work on its nationwide wireless broadband network, which will provide in-flight internet access to passengers aboard airplanes. The company installed cell sites across the entire U.S., and American Airlines and Virgin U.S. have agreed to begin offering the service later this year. American is outfitting 14 of its planes with the service, and Virgin will eventually offer it on all of its flights. The service, which is called Gogo, will be limited to popular routes between the metropolitan NYC area and a handful of west coast and Florida destinations. American Airlines will charge $13 for access on flights longer than 3 hours, and $10 for access on flights less than three hours. Virgin Mobile has not announced pricing yet. Passengers will be able to connect with laptops, PDAs and smartphones that are equipped with Wi-Fi.

If they will allow all ports and services that will be sweet! I'd love to make free phone calls mid-flight. Of course there WILL be those people that spend the whole flight on a conference call, but I could deal with it I guess.
